A Dreadnought Wheel on the Megatherium war horse... much like the Diplock Pedrail system

A dreadnaught wheel is a wheel with articulated rails attached at the rim to provide a firm footing for the wheel to roll over, they have also been known as endless railway wheels when fitted to road locomotives, and were commonly fitted to steam traction engines.

Boydell's design saw service with the British Army in the Crimean War where it was known as "The Megatherium war horse".

Thanks Steve!
